Conservatories are a great addition to any home, providing much needed space for your family to enjoy. However, they can mean additional conservatory maintenance in order to keep them looking at their best.

Here at Cosyhomes Windows, we have put together our guide on how to keep your conservatory looking great and functioning just as it should with our conservatory maintenance top tips. The best thing about these tips is that each and every one is not too costly or time consuming, and only need to be done every few months or so.

So here it is; our how-to guide for that spotless, well maintained conservatory:

Dirty Windows

With windows such a huge part of any conservatory, one thing that can really affect the look of your conservatory is their cleanliness and condition.

Pollution and weather can affect your conservatory on a daily basis, therefore it is easy to see why it doesn’t take long for grime to build up on windows. However, the best news is that it doesn’t take too much to resolve.

In fact, the best way to clean those grubby windows is with some warm soapy water and a soft cloth; this is especially true if the glass is leaded as you don’t want to dislodge any of the lead on the surface of the glass.

You should always rub gently and carefully, taking your time to get those panes shining!


Condensation can occur in conservatories, however it is an issue that can be resolved with simple ventilation.

The best way to ventilate your conservatory may seem obvious. They include:

  • Opening windows and doors regularly
  • Keeping the trickle vents open

Heating can also help to keep the space free from condensation so make sure that you install heating if it is an option.

General Conservatory Maintenance Upkeep

When it comes to keeping your conservatory looking at its best, there are some more general things that you can do at regular intervals to help.

As well as cleaning your windows, it is important to also clean the roof and side frames of the conservatory too. This should be done around every 4 months, as this will keep any grime at bay.

When it comes to cleaning products, we recommend that you buy specialist conservatory cleaning products as these are designed to give maximised results without causing any damage. Any products that are solvent based or labelled as abrasive should be avoided.

You should also pay attention to the gutters too; these can become full of debris and leaves over time and the build-up of materials in such a confined space can lead to leaks due to water overflowing from the gutter.

We hope that these top tips help keep your conservatory looking as beautiful and shiny as it was the first day you had it built. For more information, including conservatory installation in Surrey services, call us today on 020 8397 4040.
